I don't think a dependency on autoconf is necessary either. None of
the specs in Fedora Extras that I looked at have this.

Why is autoreconf needed ? I didn't run into any difficulty with libtool
when rebuilding the RPMs on FC6/x86-64, or applications that depend
on Xapian. Or did I miss something ?
